The Supreme Confederacy of The Blazing Aura is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Thorne I with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.699 billion Aurians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wightvian. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Auran economy, worth a remarkable 1,058 trillion Thingymajigs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,416 Thingymajigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Days begin with afternoon tea, the nation's poor can be seen scavenging trash bins for used coffee grounds, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and the nation is in perpetual campaign mode. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Blazing Aura's national animal is the Eagleas, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Aura.

The Blazing Aura is ranked 139,492nd in the world and 1st in Hall of the Mountain Womble for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 166.25 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
